Protect Your Child’s Health with Effective and Safe Vaccines for Children
The goal of this immunization is to reduce child mortality, morbidity, and disability associated with vaccine-preventable diseases. The following is a Vaccination schedule recommended for children by the Government of Nepal, Ministry of Health & Population.
Recommended Immunization Schedule for Children
We recommend Influenza Vaccine for people of all ages from 6 months of age. Children younger than 9 years of age who have neither been vaccinated nor infected by influenza should get two doses of the vaccine at an interval of at least 4 weeks.
HPV (Human Papilloma Virus Vaccine)
We recommend the HPV Vaccine for females from 9 to 45 years of age for the prevention of cervical cancer. We also recommend for males to prevent infections caused by Human Papilloma Virus. Females between 9 and 14 years of age require 2 doses of the vaccine. The second dose has to be administered between 5 and 13 months after the first dose. A third dose should always be administered if the second vaccine dose is received before the 5th month after the first dose.
For individuals 15 years and above, 3 doses of HPV vaccine is required. The second dose must be given 1 month after the first dose and the third dose must be given 6 months after the first dose.
PCV (Pneumococcal Conjugate Vaccine)
PCV (Pneumococcal Conjugate Vaccine) is provided for the prevention of pneumonia in infants and children from 2 months to 5 years of age.
For infants (more than 6 weeks), the recommended immunization of Prevenar 13 consists of three doses of 0.5ml each, at approximately 2 months interval, followed by a fourth dose.
For adults, only a single dose of PCV-13 is required.
Meningitis Vaccine (Menactra) is indicated for active immunization to prevent invasive meningococcal disease caused by Neisseria Meningitides serogroups A, C, Y, and W -135. It is approved for use in an individual who is above 9 months of age. In children from 9 to 23 months of age, Menactra is given in 2 doses (0-3 months). Individuals aged 2 to 55 years of age receive a single dose.
Typhoid Vaccine is recommended against typhoid fever caused by the ingestion of contaminated food and water. Currently, two types of Typhoid vaccines are available at Clinic One: TYPBAR and TCV (Typhoid Conjugate Vaccine).
TYPBAR is provided for both adults and children of 2 years of age and older. Individuals who remain at risk of typhoid fever should be given a single booster dose of the vaccine with an interval of not more than 3 years.
TCV is provided to infants of 6 months and older, and children from 3 years and older.
Varicella Vaccine (Chicken Pox Vaccine)
Varicella Vaccine is provided for protection against chickenpox.
- The varicella vaccine is given when the kids are between 12 to 15 months old. At 4 to 6 years of age, they are given a booster shot for protection
- Kids who are older than 6 years but younger than 13 years who have not have chickenpox also may get the vaccine, with two doses given at least 3 months apart.
- Kids 13 years or older who have not had either chickenpox or the vaccine need two vaccine doses at least 1 month apart.
Hepatitis A Vaccine is indicated for active immunization against hepatitis A virus in children above 1 year of age.
Hepatitis B Vaccine is given for protection against Hepatitis B Virus. It should be given to infants on the schedule of 6, 10 and 14 weeks, but it can be given at any time, provided that the second dose is given after 1 month of the first dose and the third dose is given after 6 months of the 1st dose.
